Summary: This is a great deal selling at a price of used GPU's with a 30 day warranty ,these cards were originally given a 5 year warranty and selling new for over $600.00 dollars. They are extremely well made and totally redesigned from the Radeon reference, I also have a XFX HD Radeon 6870 and it is no comparison to this Card the Engineering design is truly awesome.
Summary: I've been using this video card for about 8 months now and it still works amazingly. It is a very quiet card, not once have I heard the fan. I've been able to play games like Skyrim, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and Battlefield 3 at 1920 x 1080 with HIGH graphics settings. The frame rates have always been GREAT.
Summary: My Mac Pro was starting to feel slow when driving my dual 30" screens, compared to the snappiness of my newer MacBook Pro. On a hunch that it was simply the graphics card holding me back, I bought this, and a power cable PCIe PCI-e Power Cable for Mac G5 nVidia ATI Video Card - High Quality ...
Summary: The card is very powerful for a mid-priced piece of hardware. It eats up whatever you throw at it. Personally, my outdated CPU is bottlenecking it, but otherwise it's performing admirably well. It is however very large and I had to do some rewiring on my mobo to seat it correctly. It's somewhere around nine inches, so make sure you have enough space. It also requires two empty slots on the back of your PC. I'm more than pleased.
Summary: Really enjoying this card - runs everything I've thrown at it at 2560x1440 resolution without breaking a sweat. The extra cooling is great - other GPUs I've owned have started to glitch out after extended periods of high load (despite good case airflow), but not this one. I haven't seen temps exceed 60C at full load.
Summary: When you hold this card in your hands, you know that you're getting a well built product. Unfortunately I had to go through 2 RMA's to get the "right" card. The first one was DOA, card would crash as Windows 7 64-bit loaded up. The second card was great.. except one of the fans were making horrible clicking noises. Third one works like a charm!..
Gebruikersreview - MSI R6870 HAWK review door TERW_DAN
8 December 2012
Conclusion: Met de Hawk heb je een zeer complete kaart in huis, die een betere koeler heeft en net wat betere prestaties dan het referencemodel. De 6870 is sowieso al een leuke GPU, maar de Hawk doet daar nog een klein scherpje bovenop doordat hij lekker over te clocken is, wat ook prima gaat met de meegeleverde software. Ik heb de kaart nu een aantal maanden in gebruik en tot dusver bevalt hij me meer dan prima.
Excerpt: Jeg var egentlig i markedet for en udskiftning af mit 3 år gamle Nvidia 8800 GTS512MB, og kiggede først efter et Radeon 6850 eller 5850 (sidste er hurtigere til især DX9 og DX10 spil), men faldt så over dette her KUP! Min melding (efter 4 dage) er at det er SUPER kraftigt til 1920x1200 gaming med Crysis II, NFS serien, Bullet storm og Just Cause II. Driverne til 68xx-serien er efterhånden modne, og kortet er lydløst i 2D, og kører ubemærket i 3D.
